Poor birds, including the big one
From the article:
What type of non-bird wildlife do planes hit?
Deer sometimes can get in the way
The aforementioned deer...coyotes...prairie dogs...rabbits...perhaps a moose from time to time...
Ahhh... I wasn't thinking about 'roadkill' incidents.
Bats? Pterodactyls escaped from the Caribbean? Mothman?
When I worked for BART in the 80s it was not unusual to have deer on the tracks out around Lafayette/Orinda. They always seemed to be able to find their way out somehow. Don't imagine you'd see that on the NYC Subway.
Elk, gators, wild boar.
In other parts of the world, perhaps elephants and kangaroos. (I've seen them on the edge of the tarmac at the Canberra airport.) Polar bears around Hudson Bay and Antarctica?
